Pat Smailes has been working as a community midwife in Rhyl for thirty two years.
On this morning's 'Daybreak' she was recognised as one of Dr Hilary's 'Health Heroes', having been nominated by friends and colleagues as "the kindest, compassionate and selfless person you could ever meet".
"I feel absolutely overwhelmed by all this. It's just incredible!" said Pat.
"It's not a difficult job. It's a privilege to be a midwife and to look after all these people. I know it's a bit of a cliché, but I do feel they're all my friends."
